Alice found her way to Kasisi after her mother died. But being orphaned at a young age was not the only struggle that Alice had to overcome. She was born with cerebral palsy, and it took her a long time to learn how to walk. She was finally able to start walking after a long and difficult rehabilitation, but she still had difficulty moving the right side of her body. Despite all this, her spirit is unbreakable. She is extraordinarily strong-willed and determined not to let her disease get the best of her. Even though her exercises are sometimes unpleasant, she doesn’t miss a day of physical therapy. She loves mobility games and the challenges that house chores present. She especially loves to read. Every achievement is a reason for her to smile.
We hope that Christopher’s death, which was an unexpected tragic event for the whole Kasisi, will kick off a chain reaction of good. Because of this, we started the Christopher Sakala Fund. With this fund, we support children being treated on the oncological ward at the hospital in Lusaka.
